    The OIN could _try_ to buy it at that point. They could easily get outbid.

      Hmm... would the Bilski case have an effect on this?

        We can't count on in re Bilski to still be in force for long; the Supreme Court accepted the appeal, which means that it's probably going to alter the "machine or transformation" rule. Hopefully they'll crack down on algorithm patents, but considering the corporation-friendly tilt of the recent Court (cf. Kelo v. City of New London and Ledbetter v. Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. just to give a couple famous examples), I wouldn't count on it.

          Kelo v. City of New London is a rather horrific and odious example of bad rulings. One can always hope for some improvement in our patent system. With the cost of patent litigation, it seems the biggest winners are the lawyers. Nothing new there I suppose...
